Freedom—use it or lose it

In honor of Independence Day we will speak this week of FREEDOM, but all patriotism stops there. We are speaking of freedom because it is essential for love and love is essential for the power to act authentically. Doing what you have always done does not require authenticity, nor does it require much power (which is why it feels easy and comfortable). However your soul’s purpose lies out there, beyond comfort and easy, past authenticity and on into the realm of power and passion.

Are you free to express your power? Do you claim the freedom to express your true self mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, professionally, and intimately? Where ever you are not fully, passionately and powerfully your true self you are not free. The stories we carry of our past wounding, unmet childhood needs, and chronic fears are our own imprisonment.

This week we discuss freedom and how you can cultivate inner authority, claim your freedom to love and live your true self.


Shamanic teacher and author, Christina is a skilled healer who weaves her authentic shamanic experience, extensive training, and experience with shamans from Ecuador, Nepal, Tibet, and Africa into her contemporary practice. She has been in practice for 20 years, specializing in soul retrieval healings, soul part integration and ancestral healing. She is the director of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing in Portland, Oregon.

Pratt’s unique gift is creating effective and transforming healing rituals for contemporary people in contemporary communities. She is a teacher of exceptional clarity, humor, and inspiration, bringing the power of shamanism into the practical grasp of anyone willing to take responsibility for improving the quality of their life. Her four-year training in focuses on the practical use of shamanic skills to mature spiritually, to find ones individual true purpose, and to express that purpose fully from the heart in joy and without apology.

She is the author of An Encyclopedia of Shamanism, (Rosen Publishing) available for purchase at her website. Her popular weekly Internet radio show, Why Shamanism Now?, podcast archives can be found at iTunes .




"In the age of 'new-age-pixie-channelled-authentic-extraterrestrial- Native-American-Mayan-prophecy-reiki-rainbow-crystal-shamanism' it is delightful to find an intelligent book with a grasp of what shamanism really is and I would like to recommend this book to anyone who wants to actually study the real thing. It's not going to teach you it all, but it's going to give you a good eclectic breadth of knowledge about this world of amazing traditions. And for me I am personally delighted to be able to put it on my book shelf... and it saved me the trouble of writing it too!"
Nick Breeze Wood, Editor, Sacred Hoop, Issue 57, 2007

"On the whole, I was impressed by Pratt's personal understanding of diverse shamanic trance methodologies and ceremonial traditions, and her ability to explain those practices in unambiguous language. In fact, I was often touched at how she manages to deftly turn seemingly conventional statements into insightful teachings."
-- Timothy White, Editor, Shaman's Drum

"...this is not your typical compendium of facts and field research but a reflection of (Pratt's) deep belief that shamanism is 'a valid healing modality that is effectively practiced throughout the world.' …there is nothing else like it."
Shift Magazine: New & Noteworthy, Dec 07-Feb 08, No. 17.

Imagine having the following dream: A spider appears, tells you that you need an "ego death", and then rips you to shreds. You might think that was a bad thing. You'd be wrong. If you look up "spiders", "ego death", and "dismemberment" in your handy-dandy Encyclopedia of Shamanism, you'll discover that, shamanically speaking this dream is in fact a powerful gift from the Spirit. Intrigued?

The inclusive two-volume Encyclopedia combines the philosophy, concepts, and practical elements that make up shamanism. With over 750 in-depth entries, organized A-Z, the Encyclopedia of Shamanism contains essential information about shamanic methods and practices across cultures, ten introductory essays that clearly discuss the basic concepts of shamanism, bibliography, and cross reference index. Each entry includes sources for further reading.

“Just wanted to send kudos for another fantastic series (Shamanism and Transforming...).  Extremely insightful and relevant to every single person I know, myself included.  I am sharing these programs with all of my friends and clients. The last segment of your program on transforming mental illness was, in my opinion, the most powerful and eloquent thing I've heard on your show all year.” Mark L,Canada

“I just wanted to send a heart-felt and belated "thank you" for your show.  I feel like I've learned more about shamanism from you and some of your guests just this year than I have from any other human source since I discovered shamanism over 20 years ago.  …I may not always agree with everything that's said on your program, but I always feel incredibly enriched by what you share with your audience.” Mark L, Canada

“I want to thank you so much for your previous radio show on grounding. I am a dedicated listener, and have had two powerful, amazing soul retrieval sessions with you. …I love all of your shows, but this one in particular, with its visualization and direct teaching lead by you was so powerful and visceral in addition to being theoretical. The grounding visualization is changing my life already as I ask myself each time I get fragmented, "who's life do you want to be living?" Elana S, USA
